Jacki Gemelos injured in USC’s loss to TAMU

No words can fully express my sadness and hurt at this:

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Southern California coach Michael Cooper cried during his postgame news conference — an injury to a star player caused the tears, rather than a tough defeat.

Senior guard Jacki Gemelos might be done for the season after hurting her left knee late in the first half of Sunday’s 71-70 loss to No. 10 Texas A&M. Sydney Carter hit a 3-pointer with 10 seconds left to lift the Aggies.

Gemelos, who entered the game averaging 11.6 points and a team-high 8 rebounds, was injured as she drove the lane 3:37 before the break. She writhed on the floor beneath the basket and sobbed in the hushed arena.


  1. Oh my lord… wow… this girl can just never catch a break can she…. UGH it pains my heart just thinking about it. Prayers & good vibes being sent out to Jacki G~ wishing you the best

  2. ugh, i hate to hear this. she is such a talented player but i hope she gives her knees a break. no player wants to hear that but eventually you need to do what's best for your future.

  3. Looked at Jacki's twitter, apparently she's out "8-12 months, depending." 🙁 Is that dreaded three-letter word most likely the case? Hope hope hope not.
